Cammy, if you had actually read my post, you would know that I did not say counseling was wonderful. I said "counseling may be an option for you". Personally counseling didn't work for me but I'm pretty sure that is due to my own paranoia.
I would never tell people not to try counseling because for a lot of people it does work. I see this a lot lately, people warning others not to try a certain drug or therapy or counseling because it didn't work for them. If I had come here when I was at my most vulnerable I may have never gotten help.
There's a thread on here of people saying Lexapro is horrible and you shouldn't take it, but it saved my life because it pulled me out of a horrible depression. Just because counseling didn't work for me doesn't mean it wouldn't be a miracle for someone else.
Cammy, from the posts you've made that I've read I get the impression that you are very young, maybe a teenager. Being young can make it seem like it's all about you, but this thread was started by someone who really needs help right now. Instead of trying to cut off avenues of hope, maybe it's better to just suggest something helpful.
